Most law schools require the baccalaureate degree before admission. Although almost any degree is acceptable, the College of Arts and Sciences recommends a degree in government or history. In addition to the course requirements for the major, students should schedule ENGL 366, BSAD 221, 324, MACO 370 and various electives in government, history, sociology, and criminal justice. In the fall of their senior year prospective law school students should take the Law School Aptitude Test (L.S.A.T.).
